§ MR. SHEEHAN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether it was agreed upon as one of the essential conditions of the sale of the estate of M. J. Barry, in lunacy, that the evicted tenants should be immediately reinstated; did the agents, Messrs. Nussy & Townsend, give their consent to this proposal; have applications for reinstatements been received by the Estates Commissioners from Timothy Shea, Rahalisk, and Timothy Cronin, Muniglugh; and, seeing that there is no objection whatever on the part of the owners to the reinstatement of these men, will he explain why no steps have been taken to bring about this result; and will he further state when their reinstatement may be expected.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners have received applications for reinstatement from the persons named, and have had the matter inquired into by their Inspector, but have not yet ruled on his report. Both of the tenants were evicted in 1906.
